Guestbook comments from the manager

We did enjoy our stay there. I stayed here with 3 other guests stayed here. The place was very conveniently located to travel throughout Lake Como and visit all the towns. As well, the property has an Amazing view, and good facilities (2 full bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen), that made our stay very convenient.



I would recommend this place. Patricia Mosnia-Toronto, Canada



We stayed at your apartment in Lake Como and it was fabulous! it has fantastic views and is incredibly convenient for the town - just a short, and relatively flat walk into town within a few minutes - my father doesn't walk too well and we were so pleased that we went with this location rather than some of the other towns which had steeper streets. The apartment is spaceous and tastefully decorated and I would defintitely recommend the home. Jay-UK,

Spacious home, wonderful vista!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as part of an extended birthday celebration last June. This home really worked for our family as we rented this home for 6 and 2 of the neighbouring homes for 8 more of our family. The home was extremely spacious with a magical lake view from the balcony. Menaggio is the best village on the lake with all amenities you need for a great lake experience from the ferry to bars and restaurants which we made use of as only 2 minutes walk from the home. The village does have a large percentage of brits holidaying here it must be said, due to the fact that most of the bar owners speak English. Across the water Bellagio, popular with the US tourists we found, was easy to reach however a little more touristy so on balance Menaggio was the more authentic of the two villages and a good choice for our group who travelled.

MORE THAN MET OUR EXPECTATIONS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Toni was there to meet us right after we got off the bus and checked us into the apt. The apt. has everything one could possibly need. We couldn't see how this place could possibly be as beautiful as it looked in the pictures, but it more than met our expectations!!! We couldn't get enough of the view from the living room area!!! We would sit out on the balcony at night and sip wine and enjoyed the twinkling lights of the towns across the lake. It is truly only steps away from the bus stop and the ferry service. We were within walking distance of 2 grocery stores and lots and lots of little shops, cafes, and restaurants. The location was absolutely perfect. We didn't want to leave! Carlo came on the morning we left and returned our deposit as promised. Check-in and check-out were fast and easy. We will definitely be back!!!

Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apartment with three friends and it was just perfect. It was within walking distance of everything--restaurants, markets, and shops. The view from the living room and terrace was breathtaking. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, the bathrooms were modern, and the kitchen was fully equipped. Toni greeted us and oriented us to the apartment and the town. I would absolutely return!

Great place to unwind with beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

Great place to unwind, i could have gazed out at that view all day long. Tony met us on arrival, hes very charming and quite funny. He gave us great tips about the area, and places to visit. The apartment is spacious , clean and modern, we cooked in a few nights, however there are some lovely eateries in Menaggio. We will be back. 10/10

Absolutely stunning !!

  • 5 of 5

A truly awesome escape and all your cares just disappear as soon as you see the view.

The people (Toni) we're brilliant. Such an easy handover and a great host to give you an idea of what to expect in Menaggio.

The house is perfect for a few people, but even better if it's just the two of you. So much room and very well laid out. Kitchen is easy to use and all the essentials are there, but Great restaurants to eat out in as well. Local business is very friendly.

Highly recommend a stay. You won't be disappointed. Very easy from the ferry and busses. No need for a car.

We'll be back.

LAKE VIEW APARTMENT

  • 2 of 5

We were two couples and decided we would like to visit Lake Como to celebrate birthdays and wedding anniversaries, we looked at many apartments and decided on this one based on the web page pictures and description. The vista and location were exceptional and could not be faulted, however sorting out the payment details, was really confusing and it was difficult to work out who we were actually doing business with.

We met Tony and were handed over the keys and informed to only use the Thermostat on the heating control and to leave the Timer alone. This became an issue because when we returned after days out the apartment would be roasting, then go cold during the evening.

The reason we have rated it 2 star is because it is so far apart from both the pictures and description on the web site. ( We have pictures of the apartment)

As an example the patio furniture on the web shows some lovely brown wicker cane furniture, not the cheap eco white plastic actually there.

The so called Contemporary apartment is actually just white-washed, no contemporary colours as described and no pictures on the walls, cheap MFI or bargain basement furniture, looked cheap and probably was?

The hand stitched leather suites were both cracked and ingrained with dirt and were simply old and tired. The kitchen was bright and modern but had No Toaster, No Microwave, No Kettle and No Waste Bin. We also had in our 6 person apartment only 2 wine glasses !!

There was only one TV not the two shown and despite Tony trying, even he could not get the Satellite TV to receive Satellite Channels.

The bedrooms are basic with a stained and grubby ripped chair in one of them , not the lovely white leather chair seen on the pictures on the website and only one bedroom had wardrobes, our room had a scaffolding pole to hook your clothes on and a formica shelf above it. At this time of year (beginning of March) we would have appreciated more than just a counterpane and sheet on each bed, no blankets ,no extra pillows.

The 2 bathrooms were a benefit though the main bathroom shower tray was like a spiders web of cracks in the shower tray and again ingrained with dirt. considering we were charged at the end of the stay for cleaning even though we had cleaned the apartment and left it tidy, we felt that it was lacking the same cleanliness when we arrived. We feel this apartment fell far short of its description and was overpriced accordingly.

Owner's Response: We have reported this review to the site as the guest paid for a week and departed a day early for which the final day was not refundable. This guest wrote to us confirming he intended to share this review online however we refused to refund any payment and instead allowed the review to be threatened to be published to be added online, which as you can see from previous and subsequent reviews bears no resemblance to any of our other guests comments. We encourage our guests if any issues during their stay to contact us to correct any issues as opposed to after the holiday. The photos online were taken in March 2017, the same period for when the guest stayed and i can confirm are fully up to date and representative of the property.
